Luke’s life is shrouded in secrecy, his father – John is a Seventh Son of a Seventh Son- who in ancient days would have been considered a sacred mystical being with extreme intelligence, power to cure the sick and foresee the future. Luke’s desire to leave the back breaking mine work of Harlan escalates when he meets the mine owner’s Boston socialite daughter-Emmy. During the summer of 1936 through time spent with his new friend, Luke becomes aware of his low place in life and realizes the potential opportunity outside his home.
